    Hello.
    After a long but unwanted "painting free" period, eventually I managed to paint a model. It's Verlinden's roman legionnaire bust, 200 mm, resin.
    Not a great sculpt, but I hope you like my painting efforts.
    Model was rather easy to paint, though I couldn't take decent photos - in reality it looks a bit better.

    Ken, Steve, Carl, Mike, Ron T., Karlos, Guevera, Marc, Ron - thanks for looking and for comments, I'm happy you like my work.
    No secret here, although I used kind of experimental (for me) technique - for base humbrol metal cote, this one buffed. This should be enough, but looked flat, so I did some shading with oils (black, Van Dyke brown) and highlighting with printers ink. I belive I'll use this metod more often, as it's simple, not really time consuming and the results are satysfying.
    For worn apperance some random spots with oil burnt umber, burnt sienna, black.
